A Canadian born Filipino who is arguably (to many of his professional colleagues) the most patient, loyal, and easy going IT Infrastructure Guru/Geek/Professional/"Anal"yst you may ever know. Aside from being devoted to his teenaged son and his girlfriend, this guy spends his free time outside the IT pressure cooker as a photographer and videographer (Hmmm...coincides with the initials in his name, PAV??), gamer, and if/when given a chance - dabbles with a few musical instruments (who is named Alvin and is not musical?)

RPOTD – The Noreaster Touches Niagara

Well, Toronto got spared from most of the snow that is hitting the US  and Canadian east coasts. The same could not be said for Niagara Falls, which already got 5-10″ and is still expecting another five more inches overnight.  

These two pics (above and below) were caught with my Samsung S6 while on my way to troubleshoot issues at a branch office.   

Maleta Estate Winery, Niagara-On-The-Lake. 

Safe driving, everyone!

Is Film Making a Comeback?

I was just talking about this with Jon today and realized that the news release from Kodak is almost 2 weeks old.  Sure, this is old news now…but things in the old days took time to develop.  Like film!

Where am I going with this?  Well back to Kodak, the company has announced that it will be manufacturing Ektachrome film!

To the film enthusiasts out there, this is good news, because this is Kodak’s first slide film in the company’s film products for what was a very long time.

Me, being a Fujifilm fan, am quite delighted by this news.  I really want to try something different than Velvia as I have never had great chances to shoot with slide film as far as I can recall.  Fujifilm’s Velvia is a great product, but using the Ekta will make for a great shoot out!

We’ll keep you posted when we get our first batch.

I went out last weekend to enjoy some of what the autumn season had to offer.  (more…)

Snappy Fridays – In the Vineyard…

Visited By Chadsey’s Cairns Winery in Ontario’s Prince Edward County last weekend to pick some Chardonnay.  We were glad that the weather held and it did not rain.

Later that day, my flu developed…I’m still recovering.

All Canadians: Have a great Thanksgiving weekend!
